How Much Rainforest Has Been Destroyed in History?

Answer

In known history, it is estimated that rainforests once covered approximately 14 percent of the earth’s surface. In 1996, this figure had dropped down to 6 percent and continues to drop rapidly due to poor agricultural practices, over logging and population increase. This means that over half of the original species have been destroyed as well.
